No more waxing, tweezing or shaving with our IPL hair removal treatments. Say goodbye to ingrown hairs and stubble!
If you are struggling with unwanted hair and are tired of shaving, tweezing, or waxing, you are not alone. Many people struggle with time-consuming hair removal treatments, only to find hair growing out again.
The Palomar StarLux 500 is a versatile device that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to effectively remove unwanted hair. During your treatment, the StarLux 500 will shine a beam of intense pulsed light right into the hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles will absorb the light, destroying the hair at its root. You can remove unwanted hair from your legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, back, and chest.
IPL treatments target hairs without damaging the surrounding skin. Each pulse takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at a time. In most cases, patients will see significant, permanent hair reduction after about six to eight treatments.
While most patients can tolerate IPL treatments with no downtime and minimal discomfort you will need to be evaluated and cleared by a member of our clinical staff before being medically cleared for treatment. Even if you have had IPL treatments before, a consultation with a member of our medical team is necessary prior to starting any laser or IPL treatments.
Chapter 10.32.09 of the Code of Maryland Regulations states that all patients must be evaluated by a Physician/PA/NP prior to being treated.
Make sure you do not pluck or wax the area you plan to treat for about four to six weeks prior to your treatment. You should also decrease your exposure to the sun before the procedure to make sure you get the best results. Be sure to let our Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners know if are using ANY medications – prescription, over the counter and herbal.
Shave the area 24 hours prior to your first appointment. Do not apply any makeup, deodorant, lotions, perfume or cologne over the area you’d like to have treated.
You will experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. You will need to schedule your next treatment four to six weeks later and continue treatments until all the hair stops growing. You should see significant hair reduction after your first treatment. Be sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear plenty of sunblock to protect your skin.
